Novak can go mentally walk abouts too. Just look at his match against Pouille when he was mentally focused, he's on another planet. When he wants Serena style drama he can go walk abouts and then that feeds more confidence to the opponent and you get more classics.

This is Novak at his best. As he's mentally staying strong and focused. He'd have won the most slams ever (may still) had he applied himself like this throughout his career.

If he hadn't gone AWOL a few years ago he may well be playing here to tie with Federer's record. Maybe that's the driver about his superb focus today.
Report johnnythebull January 27, 2019 10:22 AM GMT
very rare to see but if you look at rafa's facial expressions and body language djoko has more or less broken his warrior spirit and rafa basically is quasi resigned to the fact he cannot beat this guy
Report Angela Rebecchi January 27, 2019 10:23 AM GMT
So true johnny. Rafa has tried mixing it up several times, and tried to use big winning points to get a run going but each time crucially Novak has remained focus which has enabled Rafa's spirit to become completely demoralised.

If Djok hadn't gone missing after the French Open win Federer wouldn't be on 20 imo

Djok would be on 18 imo and probably now on the most majors

Add in his 3 year disappearance after his first major as well and he's probably blown about 6 or 7 majors imo

True

Sleep and water are the main two things we need imo

Alcohol is good in small amounts though, a pint a day is actually good as it reduced stress which is another killer
